3D Egg-"Spring" Home Decor Tutorial


Happy Monday morning, to you all!!!
It's Peggy Lee here to share with you a little spring inspiration
and an egg tutorial on how I created this
little pretty!
3D Egg-"Spring" Home Decor
Grab a hot cup of coffee and enjoy it's a long blog post,
tons of photo-inspiration....
3 D Egg Tutorial
Grab your favorite paper I used the Mad Tea Party papers...
1. Draw an egg shape onto your papers 
and cut out.
2. Fold in half, use a bone folder 
to give you a good crease.
3. Distress the egg edges
4. Adhere your egg paper pieces 
together 
keep going until all the egg paper pieces 
are all adhered together
I used about 8 egg shapes
5. I like the shabby look so I distressed
again after adhered...helps hide the uneven edges.
6. Also for another shabby feel, I like to
brush gesso over the edges...optional
All together now decorate to your hearts content!
I used a dollar store candle stick,
Die cut out some flowers, embossed them adhere together....
Nestled the egg in the center of flower on a bed 
of cheese cloth!! Added some flowers, pearls and butterfly cut out 
of the papers....
A little banner touch-fussy cut out a few banner shapes...
stamped "spring" using Marion's Typo stamp set
adhered to a pink string floss-gesso the edges!!!






Thanks for stopping by today....
hugs,
Peggy Lee
